Use developmentTriangle to convert the data to a development triangle, which is the standard form for representing claims data. Create two developmentTriangle objects, one for reported claims and one for paid claims.

dT_reported = developmentTriangle(data,'Origin','OriginYear','Development','DevelopmentYear','Claims','ReportedClaims')
dT_reported = 
  developmentTriangle with properties:

                          Origin: {10x1 cell}
                     Development: {10x1 cell}
                          Claims: [10x10 double]
                  LatestDiagonal: [10x1 double]
                     Description: ""
                      TailFactor: 1
    CumulativeDevelopmentFactors: [1x10 double]
               SelectedLinkRatio: [1x9 double]

dT_paid = developmentTriangle(data,'Origin','OriginYear','Development','DevelopmentYear','Claims','PaidClaims')
dT_paid = 
  developmentTriangle with properties:

                          Origin: {10x1 cell}
                     Development: {10x1 cell}
                          Claims: [10x10 double]
                  LatestDiagonal: [10x1 double]
                     Description: ""
                      TailFactor: 1
    CumulativeDevelopmentFactors: [1x10 double]
               SelectedLinkRatio: [1x9 double]

Create a chainLadder object where the first input argument is the reported development triangle and the second input argument is the paid development triangle.

cl = chainLadder(dT_reported, dT_paid)
cl = 
  chainLadder with properties:

    ReportedTriangle: [1x1 developmentTriangle]
        PaidTriangle: [1x1 developmentTriangle]
     CaseOutstanding: [10x1 double]

Use ibnr to compute the incurred-but-not-reported (IBNR).

ibnrClaims = ibnr(cl,'reported')
ibnrClaims = 10×1

Use unpaidClaims to compute the unpaid claims.

unpaidClaimsEstimate = unpaidClaims(cl,'reported')
unpaidClaimsEstimate = 10×1

Use summary to display the latest diagonal of both reported and paid development triangles, projected ultimate claims, cases outstanding, IBNR claims, and total unpaid claims estimates.
